- I worked in the ICU Float department(s) in the hospital. I worked a branch based travel (BBT) contract which is a multi-CAMPUS float pool, floated to ICUs across several of their facilities including Hood River/Seaside. Was not sure about it at first, but once I got the hang of it--I loved it! Providence does float mid shift as there are still 8hr workers and have heard of travelers getting floated to other hospitals mid shift. Staffing was done through an outside office. I did not have a problem with them, but the contract was worded so that if you do not get your hours in, they may ask you to work nights/stepdown or med/surg or pay a penalty. The onus was on the traveler to be ultra flexible. Everything is great when you get your hours in. Staff and Docs are all good and welcoming, did not 'dump' horrible assignments. They use EPIC, Alaris pumps, Pyxis, Prisma-flex (have a separate team that sets it up for you), but does not give it to travelers. No problems parking at any of their facilities. One of the better cafeterias at St. V's in my opinion. 02/25/2017 Housing was approximately 1.2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Sunset Summit Apartments. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. It was originally corporate housing through my agency, then I took out a lease. Pet friendly.
- I worked in the ER department(s) in the hospital. There are tons of travelers here, which gives you an instant connection with some co-workers. Aside from that, staff is amazing to work with. Felt very comfortable, from day 1, with the staff and administration. I felt no division b/t staff/traveler. It's a busy ER, but CA has ratio's, so totally manageable. Would absolutely recommend this facility to a fellow traveler 02/01/2016 Housing was approximately 18 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was found my own. Housing was located in city of Long Beach, East Village. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I found my own housing and immediately fell in love w/my landlords. I'm right downtown, have view of the water, and can walk to everything!! I LOVE the area!! Parking is a an issue - my landlord warned me prior to my arrival (thankfully) so I pay $45/mo for a spot in a lot which is a 1.5 minute walk.
- I worked in the CRU/ department(s) in the hospital. Computer system is EPIC. Overtime was available. Staff appreciated and recognized my skills and appreciated me. I worked days and was treated well by physicians during rounds. I would go back..immediately 11/23/2014 Housing was approximately 1 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Breckenridge22. Housing was located in city of Portnd. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. 24 hour hot tub and exercise room. Nice pool and community room.49
- I worked in the CCU department(s) in the hospital. This is a magnet hospital - one of two in the state. Computer charting - Horizon Clinicals. Staff is great to work with. They use travelers not so much as other hospital. Travelers are treated well. No complains. No self-scheduling here. Parking is in garage. Scrubs are hospital issued blue for all critical care areas. Cafetaria opens until 2 am for night shift. Big teaching hospital. Union hospital. Will consider working here again. 12/31/2006 Housing was approximately 2 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Atherton Apartments. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 2. Old complex - no microwave. Small washer/dryer. Pet friendly.
It's very close to hospital - only 4 exits away on freeway. A lot of apartment complexes around - very nature - trees everywhere. Hiking, biking trails. Close proximity to shopping centers. Close to Nike HQ.
